ADS-7 Is A Russian Analog Drum Synth & Sequencer Inspired By 70s & 80s Drum Machines

Moscow-based AVP Synth have announced a new analog drum synth with 7 channels, individual outputs, and a sequencer with 65 knobs, 4 switches and 27 buttons for fully loaded hands on control.

This new analog drum machine from AVP Synth, ADS-7, is an analog drum synthesizer with plenty of reasons to want one. It's not based on the MAD-5 drum synth which AVP Synth tells us will be getting its own update as a version 2 in the near future. We're still waiting on pricing and sound demos for ADS-7, but here are the official spec and details in the meantime...

ADS-7 is inspired by the drum machines/synthesizers of the 70s-80s with a built-in 32-step sequencer and MIDI control. It has 65 controls, 4 switches and 27 buttons with which you can have a wide control over the sound parameters, sequencer and MIDI. It has individual audio outputs and individual trigger inputs for each of the seven sounds.

ADS-7 has 96 physical controls!

ADS-7 is assembled in Moscow/Russia using discrete components and OTA chips.
